Historically Jason Statham films have been released on a pretty stable schedule. Almost without fail his film’s are released in two periods of the year; January through April and August through October. Other than that the calendar is otherwise pretty much Statham free. That’s why when you see a Jason Statham film being released during what is normally considered a theatrical dead zone you shouldn’t necessarily think it’s because it’s a crummy movie, it’s because the studio follows a specific formula (Statham + Off Season Release Date = Cash).
